Amid the crisis in Ukraine, the foreign ministry said the first batch of people evacuated from the war-torn country had reached Romania across the Suceava border.
“The Ministry of External Affairs team in Suseva will now facilitate his visit to India for his (Hungarian capital) Bucharest,” said Foreign Ministry spokesman Arindam Bagchi.
Sources said the government has arranged for two Air India flights to bring them back from Bucharest on Saturday.
The Indian Embassy in Ukraine is working on evacuation routes from Romania and Hungary and teams are present at the Chop-Zahony Hungarian border near Uzhhorod and the Porbne-Siret Romanian border near Chernivtsi.
Hundreds of stranded Indian students have taken shelter in various schools in Ukraine to escape the bombings. Earlier on Friday, Indian authorities had asked students living near the Hungarian and Romanian borders to first leave in an organized manner in coordination with officials from teams that had crossed the borders from neighboring Poland, Hungary and Romania.
Ankit Kumar, a 20-year-old medical student stranded in Kiev, told IANS that thousands of Indian students from different cities of Ukraine are wandering from door to door seeking help to leave the country.
“Finally today, many of them can come together in schools in different cities of Ukraine with the help of the Indian embassy,” Kumar said.
